Did you know that if you blanch your peaches the skins will literally SLIDE right off.  All you need to do is bring a pot of what to boil.  In this post I used my new favorite pot check it out here , it is cast iron so it heats up fast and stays hot for a good even cooking.  Plus it is red and pretty… :).

Bring your water to a boil, gently drop the peaches in.  If they are still a bit green (not quite ripe) you will need to boil them a bit longer.  But a peach that is ripe and ready to eat only needs to be in the boiling water about 45 seconds to a minute.  Quickly take the peach out of the pot and put it in ice water. It will cool very quicly since it has not been in the hot water long enough to cook, it just loosens the skin.

DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups

Thrifty way to save some money for a Pokemon party. Make your own DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups.

DIY Pokemon Pikachu party cups

My son wanted a Pokemon party. Kid’s birthday parties can be so expensive. But being the thrifty lady that I am, I don’t spend a lot on them. We were able to come up with some great ideas and together we made some easy decorations and party supplies. There aren’t as many pictures as I had hoped to get but I did get to take a few.

To make these cups you will need:

yellow party cups

black sharpie

red sharpie

All you have to do is find a picture of Pikachu and copied his face with sharpie. The kids loved these cups and they were a big hit. I love doing inexpensive things like this for kid’s parties that they love and they don’t cost anything extra.

The Pikachu behind the cups is a pin the tail game that I found here and printed off at a local print shop so I didn’t use all my ink. The kids had a blast with it!

Here are the invites we used. They are a free printable we found here  and added all the party info before printing them off at the print shop too.

Kid’s parties don’t have to cost a lot to be a lot of fun for the kids.

Cloud Clay Recipe – So soft and only 2 ingredients and no cooking recipe

Fun kids craft idea

Watch our recorded Live video of making the Cloud Clay below

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

Cloud Clay Recipe

My kids love clay and play dough. I make it at home sometimes, or we buy it at the store.  BUT this recipe is like no other, and it is SO FAST and simple.  You only need two things to make it and there is NO COOKING involved.   It is the softest and easiest clay you will ever make!!!  My science project loving daughter had a blast making this recipe with her friend the other day.  It smells amazing and leaves your hands smooth and moisturized!

Please note… if you do not get enough moisture into t he dough it will be come crumbly MUCH LIKE MOON SAND.  So you might want to have them play with it outside or on a cookie sheet for QUICK and EASY clean up.

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

All you need to make this Cloud Clay is:

Corn Starch

Conditioner

Food color and glitter are optional

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

You need 2 parts corn starch to 1 part conditioner.  I used 1 cup corn starch and 1/2 cup conditioner.  Please note that the brand you use might require a little MORE or a little LESS depending on how much water is in the conditioner.    When you first start to mix it,  it will appear that it is going to be too dry.  But just keep stirring and before long you will have a soft dough formed.

If you choose to add color or glitter you can do it two different ways.

You can add it to the dough ball once it is formed and mix it in.  OR you can add it to the conditioner before you add the corn starch. I think it is easiest to add it to the conditioner … but the girls thought it was fun to add it at the end and see the “marble or stripes” it made.

Store in a ziploc bag, as the kids play with it it might dry out a little. Just knead in more conditioner to keep it soft and moist.

Oven Baked Smores made in less then 3 minutes Easy Family Recipe

Watch our recorded Live video of us making them below

Oven S'mores, EASY camping recipe made right in your kitchen. Fast and easy and SO GOOD, perfect for a big group and less mess, Popular dessert ideas for summerOven S’Mores made in less than 3 minutes

We had a big family reunion last week,  my sister was going to let the kids make s’mores for dessert, but it was too hot to start a fire. PLUS we did not really want the kids all smelling like smoke, so we made Oven S’Mores instead. I have to tell you, these are the BEST WAY to make s’mores. You can make a whole pan of them in less than 3 minutes. Plus you don’t have kids running around with sharp pointed objects, blazing hot, often with a burning marshmallow on the end.  But the very best part is the chocolate melts perfect and the marshmallow is toasted to perfection.

To make them all you need is:

Large baking sheet

Graham Crackers

Marshmallows

Hershey’s  Chocolate

Or you could just grab a S’mores Kit 

Break the graham crackers in half. On a large baking sheet spread out the graham crackers. Place 1-2 squares of chocolate on each cracker. Place a large marshmallow on top of the chocolate.  Put the pan in a preheated oven set to broil. I keep the door open so I can watch them close. I also put the oven rack down LOW so the pan is farther away from the heating element.  This allows the marshmallow to toast with less chance of burning. BUT they brown fast so watch them close, all it takes is 2-3 minutes with the oven on broil.

The chocolate will be perfectly melted, and might even be a little hot, so let them cool a few minutes before you serve them  to smaller children. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family does!
